Undiscovered ski areas

In the Italian Brenta Dolomites you can choose from different ski resorts. Some of them are already loved amongst winter sports enthusiasts and others are still relatively unknown.
The ski area of Paganella – Andalo is still a hidden gem. With 58 kilometers of tracks this surely is a widespread ski resort and from the wide tracks you get the most breathtaking views of the capricious mountain tops of the Dolomites.

The height of the skiing area is 1000-2125 metres. Most of the time there’s a sufficient amount of snow but also when there isn’t, you will still be able to ski. The Italians are magicians when it comes to snow. They have ultra modern snow canons. This skiing area is well loved amongst (Italian) families and very suitable for the beginner and more advanced skier.

For the real fanatic, the area is perhaps on the small side, but in that case you can also purchase a special ski pass for other ski resorts in the Dolomites, such as Madonna di Campiglio.

Winter sports in Molveno

Enjoy a well-deserved ski holiday in Molveno, a 5 minute drive from Andalo-Paganella. The village is very authentic and during the winter season one may call it a fairytale. All the necessary facilities are available and besides the classical winter sports activities such as skiing and snowboarding there are a lot of things to do here.

You can enjoy the winterly atmosphere, exquisite cuisine and go on trips such as snowshoeing, carting on ice, paragliding or go on a tour by sleigh. Culturally the area also offers sufficiently. Discover Trento for example. This provincial town has a beautiful and historic centre.
